The role of transrectal ultrasonography in the diagnosis and management of prostatic and seminal vesicle cysts.
J Urol. 1989 May; 141(5):1206-9.JU

Abstract

Cysts in the region of the prostate and seminal vesicles are interesting because of their differential diagnosis and embryological relevance. We present our experience with 5 cases that include a müllerian duct cyst, diverticulum of the spermatic tract, seminal vesicle cyst and 2 prostatic cysts. Transrectal ultrasonography had a significant role in the diagnostic evaluation of these cysts. Ultrasonographically guided transperineal needle aspiration added significant diagnostic information and might have a therapeutic value. After a review of the literature, we propose an algorithm for the evaluation and management of prostatic and seminal vesicle cysts.
